2012 Lexus IS 250Reggie Oxner - beaver dam, WI12/27/2015
I like the style and looks . Car has a good feel for road while driving not sloppy . Gas efficiency is good , I'm above average at 32 mpg than listed . Front interior is nice with leather heated / cooled seats and all technologies are easy to use . Even with lack of power having paddle shifters and power shift makes it fun to drive . Very good visability at night .
Best car I've ever owned!
2007 Lexus IS 250Linda Nicks - Colorado Springs, CO10/02/2016
Close to perfect in every way Lexus ensures on every vehicle they produce - right size, efficiency, luxurious features for every driving condition imaginable when you have no need for a large less maneuverable vehicle as I had previously (Lexus of course) - I'm a Lexus for life driver!
I love my Lexus
2012 Lexus IS 250Monica M - Woodbridge, VA12/13/2015
Very stylish and quick car. Nice bucket seats and interior design. It's a very compact car, so if you're tall you may lack some leg room. I'm 5'2 so this is perfect for my size. The stereo system is great and the dashboard is fun and interactive. I like that it tells me how many miles I have left in my tank, what my average speed is, what gear I'm in etc.
Lexus IS-250 Overview
If you're in the market for an entry-level luxury sedan, this modestly-powered vehicle has precise steering, a high-quality interior, and a variety of high-tech features.
Lexus IS 250 History
Though the Lexus IS line was introduced in 2000, it did not include the IS-250 until 2006 and was introduced alongside the IS-350. The 250 ensured its engineering would stay competitive with a powerful 2.5L V6 engine. Also, the 250 comes equipped with an array of luxurious features and spacious cabin. Though technological changes over the years have been minor, in 2014, the entirely redesigned 250 showcased a completely new interior and exterior.
How It Drives
The Lexus IS-250 features high performance and acceleration with rear-wheel drive to support its turbocharged engine. In addition, the handling and braking are precise with coordinated turning capability. The vehicle handles quite well - the Lexus IS-250 is enjoyable for day-to-day commuting and passenger comfort, though the rear seats may be a bit tight.
Used Lexus IS-250 Value
If you are looking for a highly-styled compact premium sports sedan, the Lexus IS-250 is a worthwhile option in this popular car segment. It competes with the Audi A4, BMW 3-Series, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class as an entry-level sports sedan. As a result of its retractable hardtop, the vehicle provides a quieter ride than its rivals and more protection from inclement weather. Because changes under the hood have been minor, the year is tied to exterior and interior trend.
Lexus IS-250 Standard Features
The Lexus IS-250 offers two engine options: a 2.5L or 2.5L V6 engine. The upscale material, handsome styling, and high-tech interior ensure the vehicle is comfortable and luxurious for both driver and passenger. Also, seat comfort and legroom are generous on this competitive sports sedan.
Luxury cars come in all shapes and sizes, but they are all expected to look good and perform well. One advantage of buying a used luxury car is that you get the luxury look-and-feel that you want at a more affordable price.
